As well as celebrating our strong women on National Women’s Entrepreneurship Day in November and as part of the success stories page on our website, we are also taking steps to support our female staff with the challenges that they face as women in the workplace.
To this end, we have signed up to the GLA’s project, run by Successful Mums Career Acedemy, that has many benefits including a women’s wellbeing and menopause policy.
In particular, recognising and considering the effects of menopause on one of our employees has helped us to adapt her job in a flexible way, allowing more effective management of her time both in and outside of the office. This in turn has become a win-win situation. Our employee is less tired and overwhelmed, and we have a happier and fully focused member of staff.
Successful Mums Career Academy have secured funding from the Mayor of London to work with a number of forward-thinking employers. The funding is aimed at those employers that encourage flexibility and diversity by including women returners and parents into their future workforce.
This means Successful Mums can provide employers with FREE advertising on their job board along with practical, short online training sessions covering;
- Introduction to flexible working

- Women’s health and wellbeing
Plus, policy templates for your adaptation;
- Women’s health and menopause

…and guidance on quality standards accreditation for your company to embrace flexible working and stand out as an employer of choice.
By signing up, you will also receive free advertising on our job board to reach out to our skilled audience of women for up to two years, plus PR opportunities as a forward-thinking employer.
Taking part is completely free and just requires a few hours of your time and an interest in implementing flexible working practices in your workplace.
